TAITO, the largest game center operator in Japan, has announced the addition of the Music and Puzzle divisions to next year's " Toushin Matsuri 2020: World Championship of ARCADE ", one of Japan's largest arcade version e-sports tournaments, to be held at the " Toushin Matsuri 2020 ". TAITO also announced on its official YouTube channel that the music and puzzle divisions will be added.

In addition, a video of the announcement by Shohei Shiiki, the producer of Toushin Festival, and Yasuaki Matsuda of Universal Gravity, Inc. was also released on Taito's official YouTube channel along with the announcement of the new divisions and their titles.

What is the Toushin Festival?

Last year, 2018 was the first year of e-sports, a year in which e-sports became so recognized and popularized that it was called the "first year of e-sports." The Toushin Festival is an arcade game tournament centered on fighting games that has been held by Taito since 2015.

The competitive nature of games is said to have originally originated in game arcades, and TAITO has been developing, manufacturing, and selling arcade game machines and operating game arcades (amusement facilities), supporting the competitive nature of e-sports since the early days of gaming.

As the title says, "Toushin Matsuri" is a tournament for fighting game-centered titles, and Fangler Games went to the last Toushin Matsuri as a private party and was impressed by the great turnout.

New divisions and titles added to the Toushin Festival

  • Tekken 7 FATED RETRIBUTION ROUND 2

The surprise this time was the selection of SAMURAI SPIRITS for the Fighting Action Division.
Since the arcade version of Samurai Spirits for NESiCAxLive2 has not yet been officially launched, we were worried about whether it would be selected for the "Fighting Festival," but it was successfully selected.

Call for preliminary contests is now open!

At the same time as this announcement, we started accepting applications for the preliminary contests. The deadline for applications is November 1.
The final is scheduled for spring 2020. We are looking forward to next spring!
